Marty's Joke of the Day

Marty's Joke of the day is an internet column that I've written for more than 5 years.
I tell humorous stories about my "sweet wife" and raising our 4 young sons, named #1, #2, #3, and #4.
After 5 years of story telling, in August of 2005, doctors found a brain tumor in son #4.
Our focus here has changed little as we still try to find humor in our lives.

Down the roller coaster we go...

Down down down the roller coaster we go.

Things got worse after our first surgeon's update. It's a lemon-sized
tumor. They were only to take 10% or less out before his blood loss
was too much. They left his skull off for the swelling, sent a piece
of the tumor to the lab to see what kind it is. Preliminary results
aren't good, but we have to wait for the full report. They may try
aggressive chemo and radiation, but only after the test results are
back Tuesday or Wednesday. He's in heavy sedation with 2 tubes in his
head, one in his neck, 2 in his hands and one in his foot. This is
tough news indeed. They're putting in a PICC line today, and putting
him in an induced coma so he won't move around.

Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers.
